Why APPI:  When Supreme Integrated Technologies was contracted to build a barge-mounted work platform, mechanical engineer Carson Vaccarella turned to Allied Power Products for help with specifying the hoist needed to deploy a folding section of the unit.  Based on the project specifications, it was determined that a Columbia HD1300 was the most practical solution to their needs.

When the platform is deployed, the operator swings out a jib arm with the hoist mounted on it, hooks the load line to the folding section of the platform and lifts it from its stowed position.  The boom is then swung past the center of the hinge on the platform and the platform extension is lowered to expand its working area.  To stow the folding section, the process is reversed and the jib and hoist are secured until needed again.

Using one of our Columbia AC electric hoists mounted on the jib makes this multi-axis lift, tip and lower process very simple.
